Zayn Malik, one fifth of mega band, One Direction, made headlines last night after tweeting #Free Palestine to his 13 million followers. The Muslim-raised singer, usually quiet on the social media front, tweeted his support on the eve of Eid, which marks the end of a month long fast of Ramadan.
Malik’s tweet was retweeted over 150 thousand times and was met with both positive and negative responses from all over the internet. Several celebrities have tweeted their support for Palestine in the past few weeks, only to have it taken down within minutes. As of time of press, his tweet still remains.
It’s been three years since SBTRKT, London producer Aaron Jerome, released his debut self-titled LP. He’s back with some fresh tracks, dropping “New Dorp, New York,” featuring vocals from Grammy award winning artist Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend.
The track is a strange little bop; completely organized mechanical funk. The track is full of surprises through each measure. It’s a daring single, leaving me guessing about how the upcoming album is going to sound like.
An official release date for this sophomore album, Wonder Where We Land, was announced for September 20th on Annie Mac.
Yesterday the One Direction hottie, Liam Payne, sent the internet into a tizzy, when the pop singer posted what seemed to be a full frontal nude picture on his Instagram! His goods were pixelated, but it left quite an impression. He joked with the caption, “damn, that was my last pair”.
Within minutes, #UNCENSORITLIAM, became a worldwide trend that lasted for hours, as fans tried to convince Liam to post an uncensored version. The 20 year old prankster eventually responded with the unedited version, which (sadly for fans) revealed that he was indeed wearing boxers.
Despite the boxers, fans seemed to appreciate the view of the brown eyed cutie. Maybe next time!
Liam and the rest of his band mates are set to embark on their 2 month North American tour, this weekend.
Scandinavian powerhouse pop collaborators Robyn and Royksopp have released a brand new official music video for their latest single, “Do It Again.”
In collaboration with Danish filmmaker Martin de Thurah, the beautifully crafted black and white short film depicts various scenes of characters battling through the midst of a budding political revolution, throttling the viewer through a range of emotions: fear, lust, defeat, and resistance.
The final season of FX’s wildly popular show, Sons of Anarchy, will officially return on September 9th with an hour and 45 minute long episode! FX put out a small spoiler, stating that the show would pick up 10 days after the BRUTAL murder of Tara, with “Jax in jail on a parole violation, grappling with the loss of the woman he loved. With the club’s full support, he sets in motion the brutal machinations that will lead to complete and merciless retribution.”
The show is coming to an end after an impressive 7 season run. The premiere will be followed by Anarchy Afterword, a live post show hosted by Chris Fanjola. Bring it on!
After a controversial weekend consisting of getting kicked out of a Broadway musical, being arrested, getting thrown out of a restaurant for urinating in the parking lot, and picking a fight with a random stranger, Shia LaBeouf is allegedly seeking help for his bad boy behaviors.
Following his oh so dramatic trip to NYC, the 28-year-old actor reportedly checked himself into a Hollywood rehab facility today. It’s been said that he was spotted carrying an Alcoholics Anonymous book on his way in.
For months now, LaBeouf has been spiraling out of control right in front of our very eyes. So here’s to hoping he gets the help he needs to become the gorgeous man we love!
